i want to get something with white walls, mostly doing park and dirt right now, so i want something that's good for both right now im running 80psi in the front, and 90 in the back, Ive been looking at a few, I'd prefer to have a 2.4 up front for some more cushion, but ya know i'll take what i can get... so tires right now under consideration are...

Chase Hawks
Dugans
Kink Lyra(Powers recommended them)
Maxxis rizers

got any suggestions let me know...

Also anybody in virginia near 20112, I'm currently trying to get the old Prop's Trails rebuilt behind the BP(which doozed them down for a parking lot) anybody who wants to help head over to the full thread Here----

Get a FAF white/reflective wall up front and run an Animal TWW in the back.

Or you can just run Dugans front and back.

TWW is a great park tire. I have one.

Also, I recommend 65-75 psi front, it actually makes the balloon tires worth it. No cushion if it's at 80+ in my experience. And 75-80 in the back because 90 can get rough and sucks on dirt. It's like putting a hockey puck on as a tire and expecting good grip. But that's me, not you, not my bike.

TWW are basically slicks so they'd be pretty terrible for dirt plus they don't make them anymore.
fit FAF i find slide a bit on concrete

I ride a Fit FAF . Run it in the back and a slick in front ( Donnasqueek in my case ) . Best of both worlds . I ride street and park though .

I know United tires would be a good look into as well actually .

Kink Lyra.

They are kinda like Fit FAFs, but better for dirt.

It doesn't matter where a train goes. It's decidin' to get on that does.

Tww is fine for the rear in dirt.

THEY DON'T MAKE THE TWW ANYMORE. why would you suggest a tire that's almost impossible to find?

Shadow Valors are fantastic, Dugans are awesome.. I loved my Lyras. I wanna get another pair again later on, they are kinda slow in the corners but grippy as all fuck and going straight real fast! Great for wall rides.

But really, Shadow Valors are the best overall. go 2 2.2s and you're set for ages if you don't like the giant 2.4s haha
